Rapid kits

Try our new patented technology which allows coliphage testing and enumeration within the same working day (results in <6,5h).

Bluephage is revolutionising water quality monitoring with a new patented bacterial host strain for the detection of coliphages. This new technology enables the detection and quantification of coliphages within the same working day without overnight plating of the sample or manual count of plaque-forming unit (PFU).

Our Bluephage Rapid Kit offers a brand-new method for the enumeration of coliphages and promises to revolutionise the way the world monitors water quality. The development of these Fast Kits is the culmination of decades of research and experience in the field of microbiology and as a result, has simplified, improved and reduced time for detection of coliphages. With the Somatic kit available NOW and the F-specific and Total kits due to drop by year’s end, Coliphage enumeration is in a better place than it has ever been.

The Bluephage Rapid Kit provides comparable results to both ISO and US-EPA methods whilst simplifying and speeding up the process to detect and enumerate coliphages, making it the closes possible technique to real-time monitoring. The speed of which this process can be completed is such that you could begin at the start of your workday and collect the results by the time you go home.
